We’re not even going argue with the fact that skincare is a part of every woman’s daily routine, but men should also consider incorporating the same practices into their routines, which will help improve their overall appearance. The rise of Botox among men in recent years has proven that they, too, want to look good! Below are some tips for men considering Botox and how everyday facial care can enhance their looks!
While Botox might be new to some, there is nothing effeminate about a man getting the procedure done. We would argue that men making a decision to take care of their skin and appearance are setting themselves up for success. Besides, men and those already attending a gym are already engaging in anti-aging techniques and self-care! If you’re already convinced of Botox’s benefits, the tips below will enhance the treatment to make sure your skin looks young. Read on!
Men should also look great whenever they can. Visit us today and ask us how Botox can start turning back the hands of time!
Choose a Good Cleanser
Women might know this, but some men might not. Bar soaps dry skin quicker than liquid soaps. If you’re attached to a certain bar soap brand, look for one that has olive oil, vitamin E or jojoba oil. For the men who have oily or acne-prone skin, keep cleansers with salicylic acid or benzyl peroxide within reach. Using a good exfoliator will also help remove all of those dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new ones. Try keeping the exfoliating down to once or twice a week since it can be harsh for skin.
Moisturize Every Day
Apply moisturizer after a shower when skin is still slightly damp. This helps lock in the moisture. Men with normal skin (not oily) should use a lotion, and men with oily skin should opt for a cream.
Drink More Water
If you want clearer skin, plenty of water intakes per day is the way to go. Drinking water also helps the skin moisturize from the inside out. Drinking six to eight glasses of water a day while avoiding sugary drinks will help reduce skin inflammation and less breakouts of acne.
If you haven’t heard this before, we’ll tell you: pollution and the sun can cause major skin damage, and the most effective way to fight it is with sunscreen and moisturizer. Even your scalp needs protection! Wear a hat whenever possible or apply some sunscreen when you can. Consider a spray versus a lotion for your scalp since they’re easier to use and are less messy to clean up. Be on the lookout for hair products that include sunscreen.
Be Careful When Shaving
In order to keep your skin around your jaw youthful-looking, take care of your shaving routine. Start with a wet, warm towel and wrap it around your face to soften up the hairs, or you could just use warm water. Lather up with some shaving lotion for a few minutes to soften hairs and use pre-shaving oil, which will act as a moisturizer.
Try sticking to a single- or double-razor blade. Also, shave in the direction of the hair growth and not against it. Shaving against hair will give you that baby face smooth feeling, but it will only last for about a day and will irritate and damage your skin. Finish off with some aftershave or moisturizer.
Rest, De-Stress and Ask Us About Botox!
Last, but certainly not least, take some time to de-stress and rest. Get plenty of sleep because cells need time to repair the damage from the harshness of the day and so does your skin. For a good night’s sleep, aim for six to eight hours. Trust us, catching up on sleep during the weekends won’t do the trick alone, so sleep well every night.
